A common complaint among hearing aid wearers is distortion, or a “clipping” sound that may be heard when listening to sound at high volume. Older analog hearing aids didn’t experience the clipping, as it is caused by the transfer from analog audio to digital signals. While this process occurs in all modern digital hearing aids, its negative effects on the quality of the reproduced sound can be addressed and Widex is tackling this issue with the use of the True Input Technology.
“Widex is the only manufacturer that utilizes four A/D converters—each with the highest linear input range in the industry at 113 dB SPL,” said Widex Director of Educational Development, Leslie Staverman, AuD. “By using additional converters, Widex successfully preserves the integrity of input sounds, allowing for the cleanest, most accurate listening experience in every situation.”
This enables Widex Beyond and Widex Unique hearing aids to capture clear sound even in the most challenging environments. The reproduced sound is fuller, richer and transparent, without any input handling artifacts or distortions.
